Directory Object Identifiers

The term OID stands for Object Identifier. In an LDAP server, OIDs are used to uniquely identify all attributes, objectClasses, and syntax rules that make up the schema for the server. A little more about OIDs is here.

Stanford's OID stem is 1.3.6.1.4.1.299.  An individual "level" is called an arc.  For example, objects in the first arc of Stanford's OID stem all start with 1.3.6.1.4.1.299.1.
